I go through phases of Twitter evangelism, and while I have my doubts about its value, I cannot deny that I enjoy using it enormously.
I’ve already written about Brian Prichard, the Mayor of Wandsworth, who died this month, but as last night saw the last pre-election council meeting dedicated mainly to tributes to him and today is his funeral service I thought it worth a few more moments of reflection.
I was incredibly saddened to hear the news that Brian Prichard, the current Mayor of Wandsworth, died last night.
I’ve managed to get this three times so far (which makes it borderline spam, but I am on quite a few Mayoral and GLA lists) but it’s quite interesting reading.
Although I usually use this last post of the week to witter on about the past week I’m going start off with an event two weeks ago.
Last week I touched on the Labour gimmick of freezing council tax in the eight London boroughs they control and suggested that, actually, if you wanted value and quality services you were better sticking with Conservative authorities that already had a track record.
I hope I’m wrong, but I suspect that how the council is run is another of those subjects that those people involved, but no-one else, gets terribly exercised about.
